End of Year Sign Out Poll: I’m curious how many teachers are required to: give up their keys at the end of the year even when they’re returning, clean out their classroom even when they’re returning, do intensive cleaning/janitorial duties before signing out, or other ridiculous procedures? (My answer in comments)
M&A tax manager 1 salary? CPA

Hi Tax Bowlers, I'm an experienced associate (2yrs) in a Big 4 Transfer Pricing division. I have reached a point in my career where I am considering taking up a professional certification. Several colleagues recommended taking up either ACCA or CFA, however, I see little connection between these certifications and the work that I am currently doing, and what I plan to do in the future. What would you guys suggest? Would it be detrimental to my career if I did not take up any certifications?
If firms go exclusively remote, I have zero reason to remain living near “home office”. Likelihood we’ll shift to that model, and can live wherever?
Have an opportunity to roll of a 6-month engagement soon. PPEDs & SMEs would like me to return (minimum another 6 months). Client work is something I have absolutely no interest in (open SOW so a lot of BAU work). That being said, I don’t have another engagement lined up. I have been networking but my conversations have translated into involvement in pursuits/leads. I’d be walking away from guaranteed utilization on a G360 account and a potential agile promotion in May..gamble or not? thoughts?
Am I the only one who doesn’t care about promotion? I’m happy as long as I am not bored / have something to do everyday, and working with fun / nice people
Anyone else stuck in DFW?
Has anyone ever tried negotiating for more vacation rather than a higher salary? I'm applying and interviewing for jobs right now. Some firms have unlimited PTO while others only give a few weeks. Personally, I'm much more interested in getting an additional week of vacation and would rather negotiate for that but usually only hear of people negotiating for salary. Has anyone had experience with this?
When your partner puts time on your calendar for a one on one next week with zero context…it is promotion season but I’ll surely be overthinking this for the next week! 😬😬
Vacation Question- Westin vs W (Paris)?
I’ll be doing my first deposition ever via Zoom in a month or two. Any tips? Resources to read? Videos to watch? (I’m a rising second year associate who got hired during the pandemic. I really want to impress my new bosses, so I’m going to put in tons of non-billable time prepping)
Rant: The job search is super draining. Seeing people getting interviews and offers to higher caliber firms makes me wonder what’s wrong with me. I have referrals and wrote the best resume I could.
Can I apply for the same department my wife works in? Or would that be conflict of interest? She works for a big 4
Frankly, I have no patience left for people who are unvaccinated by choice and don’t much care if you all become a statistic before all of this is over. You all deserve the worst case of Covid imaginable, and I hope you get it.
